StencilGirl StencilClub November 2013 Inspiration!

Maria here today to show you what I did with the EXCLUSIVE November 2013 StencilClub stencils designed by Joanne Sharpe!

Joanne's artwork is so free and loose--I LOVE it! I decided to use the 6" x 6" stencil and make an embroidered patch for a project I'm working on.

I started out with a piece of 100% wool and used acrylic paint to give me guides.

Then the stitching began! 
I used a satin stitch and an outline stitch to go over everything I had stenciled on the wool. I love to stitch on wool. For some reason it seems to go faster to me :)

After the stitching was done (it went very quickly) I started needle felting.

I thought I'd add my needle felting video I did a while back here for you again to see how really quick and easy it is.

I hope this showed you how quick and easy you can have a embroidered patch to add to your next project!

  1. beautiful work and I love that tutorial. On my list of things to try someday!

  2. The stitching on the felt is gorgeous! I also enjoyed your felting video. I've never felted like that, but this looks fun and I enjoy trying new things. I've felted by knitting wool yarn and then felted by washing the knitting. Makes great hats that way!

  3. Thank you SO much...I had no idea it was so simple. I'm sure this technique can enhance my mixed media work.

  4. beautiful work ~ you make it seem so easy!

  5. Thank you for your willingness to share.

  6. Thank you for the tutorial. I did not know this way of working the product. It is a wonder,

  7. Oh my goodness Maria! Such a beautiful piece- Thank you for showing the ease of this !
